VICRYL RAPIDE™ Undyed Braided & Coated Absorbable Suture, 5-0, P-3, Precision Point-Reverse Cutting, 18"
Coated VICRYL RAPIDE™ (polyglactin 910) suture is a synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of a copolymer made from 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. Although this suture is a synthetic absorbable suture, its performance characteristics are intended to model the performance of collagen (surgical gut) suture.
Coated VICRYL RAPIDE™ suture is indicated only for use in superficial soft tissue approximation of the skin and mucosa, where only short term wound support (7-10 days) is required. Coated VICRYL RAPIDE™ suture is not intended for use in ligation, ophthalmic, cardiovascular or neurological procedures.
